Paladin forgets to return library book: WTF now?


Off-Topic Discussions


Lose all powers, or turn into a anti paladin? What?


NO and YES.

KABOOM!!!!


Lose all powers until he returns the book and pays the late return fee.

If he checked out books from Jackie Collins then he would turn into a anti-paladin.


Loses all powers and gets a call from the Library Police

Depends on the book. If it was the Necronomicon and he thusly destroyed it after checking it out, it was for the greater good. If it was "Fluffy Bunnies Going Out for a Trip" then he would immediately become a Fighter without bonus feats.

But, I think we're oversimplifying. This is a very complex issue. Let's ponder the following.

The paladin has a book out and its overdue. He actually tries to return the book, but the librarian attempts to kill the paladin. Now, clearly, so long as the paladin doesn't enjoy himself in doing so, he can kill the librarian . . . but what if there are no other librarians to accept the book?

If he just leaves it, someone could steal it.

If he keeps it, hasn't he just stolen it, and as such, just committed an act of Chaos?

Would the paladin have to find a suitable librarian and then convince them to transfer to his local branch to subvert this situation? Does he loose his powers until he can convince the librarian to change branches, or does he loose them until the librarian actually moves to the new branch and can legally accept his book?

We need to get this answered now, guys!


Was it the Necronomicon?


It was "Go Dog Go."


Lol Spanky.


What if the paladin was overdue, and then the overdue book was accidently put in his recycling bin and sent to the recycling center so he couldn't return it. Then, the paladin finds out that the librarian is actually a psychic vampire who feeds off the fear of patrons with overdue books and children come to take out Go Dog Go.

Is this evil? Or a cheezy Stephen King short story?


Yes

Well that wasn't very lawful or good of you. If you were a paladin, you might lose your powers for that.


I think he atones by submitting to a spanking from the naughty librarian.

According to WikiLeaks, the paladin doesn't even have a library card.

My monster entry says "Always Lawful Good." Clearly, you need to adapt your alignment definitions to accommodate whatever I am doing at the time.

I believe this is a case of "Lawyered".

I think the paladin would be forgiven if:

o he paid the late-return fine.
o had a note from his doctor, or
o quietly explaining he was battling the forces of doom, and couldn't get away on time, and that he was sorry.
